Extensions for Self-Paced Courses

Self-paced course extension policies have changed effective fall 2018. Please read the outlined changes below, which vary depending on when you enrolled in a self-paced course.

Students Enrolled between February 24, 2018 and August 23, 2018
You may submit an extension request online. There is no extension fee for enrollments between February 24, 2018 and end of August 23, 2018.

Students Enrolled in Fall 2018 Onward
Extensions will no longer be available for enrollments on and after August 27, 2018. If you are unable to complete the course by your completion deadline, you need to withdraw from the course to avoid a grade of F on your transcript.

Students with Extenuating Circumstances
If you have at least 50% of the coursework submitted by your completion deadline and documentation of extenuating circumstances, you may file a petition for a two-month extension. The Petition Committee uses the same standards as the main campus and will contact the course instructor for approval prior to granting or denying your petition.

Contact cewww@colorado.edu for more information or to get your questions answered.

If you are a Continuing Education student with a dismissal hold you wish to petition, please schedule an appointment with an academic advisor.

Now that you’ve selected your favorite Continuing Education courses, email or print the information, including class number, to more easily search MyCUInfo and enroll. Still have questions? Contact an advisor.
